D'art's No-Litter Cat Box


D'art's No-Litter Cat Box
Use Policy

D’Art’s no-litter cat box is a traditional cache inspired by D’Art the gallery cat, DAC’s most popular staff member. D’Art’s cache serves as an introduction to the Riverboxes™ series and Riverboxes Challenge. Created by Dublin Arts Council staff in 2013, this cache can be found on the DAC grounds.

Dublin Arts Council has commissioned the creation of Riverboxes™, artist-created vessels that are inspired by the hobbies of letterboxing and geocaching which combine map-reading or GPS skills and artistic pursuit with delightful ‘treasure hunts’ in beautiful, scenic places. Riverboxes contain a unique artist-made stamp, journal and historical and environmental information for visitors to discover in Dublin parks along the banks of or connected to the Scioto River and its tributaries. Clues to the whereabouts of the discreetly installed Riverboxes can be found in the Riverbox listings on this site. Community participants are encouraged to bring a personal journal and an ink stamp, either handmade or commercially produced, as they search for Riverbox locations. Letterboxing/geocaching hobbyists often mark their journals with the ink stamps discovered at each location, and in turn, imprint the site’s journal with their own ink stamp.
